Default Running Speaker Cable's Outside?

Planning on running speakers cables through wall then they will run outside in tubing and back in the wall. Any problems with this?

At the moment i can see no issue with this. The cable is going to be protected by the tubing so temperature should be no problem.

Thanks

Temperature isn't usually a problem (unless you live in an extreme climate) for wires, it's the UV from sunlight that causes problems. As long as you've put it into a conduit of some sort and sealed it from water penetration, you should be fine. Do use in-wall rated wire, though, as it'll be more durable (and the right stuff for the job, too).

Since it will be in the tubing I don't see where you would have anything to worry about.

yeah i have CL2 Rated Cables from Monoprice.
Would a pipe be better, or would some simple insulation cable like this suffice?

Ick... If you really mean "a pipe" or something other than electrical conduit, just skip it altogether and buy some outdoor speaker wire...

Use silicone caulk to seal up the wall penetrations, and some cable tacks to secure the cable to the wall (whatever works for the exterior construction materials).
